Yeah I have the magic bullet which is a food processor.  They are the whole ones - idk if they sell steal cut ones around here.  About how small should the oats be?  Thanks so much!

Porridge fingers in the oven - 15 minutes at 190C (or whatever that is in Fahrenheit or gas).
I just leave the oats  whole, but they're not jumbo ones or anything like that.

Ok tried it - failed haha.  Have you ever made them with breast milk?  Maybe that's the problem...  Can't do dairy... They didn't even stick together.

Quick question about moving on with blw.... Jack is getting the hang of the pincer grip now and getting smaller pieces into his mouth.  Is it best to stick with big finger chunks of food still or better to chop things up a bit more so it's easier for him? Sometimes he bites off too much and cries but I guess that's all part of the learning? !

If it's something that comes in a big chunk, I'd leave it like that.  He can experiment with using pincer grip if you give peas or sweetcorn or something like that.

I always find that jacket potatoes kind of crumble anyway.  I always used to just do a sort of wedge with the skin still attached.  As for chicken, I'd probably just give it how I was serving to everyone else.

Back again!  So Vi is eating o's like it's her job and will only pick up things she likes the feel of.  Do you think since she ate some purées, and is now eating o's - I should give her little pieces of food instead of wedges?  Thanks!

Sorry, what do you mean by Os?  Ball shaped things or rings?

You could try pieces of food.  The beauty of BLW is that it's really down to you and your LO.  If she likes smaller bits, you could always give it a go.  If she's still not interested you could do different shapes.

Hey girls :)

I'm thinking about maybe doing BLW with DS2 when we start weaning, but I need to get a bit clued up on it and decide whether I think it's the way I want to go.

What sort of foods do you start with?
